The Difference

The difference between the south and so many other places is apparent in this short story my friend relayed to me about the children's service at his church this past Sunday.

The preacher had a broomstick with a white flag tied to it. He asked the question to the children "Does anyone know what this means?" trying to coax the children into saying "surrender". One little girl raised her hand and proudly answered the preacher question about what the white flag meant.

She said, "It means one lap to go."

Of course she would have known if she was French.

If it wasn't for my watching Daytona last weekend, I wouldn't have gotten the joke.

But she still wouldn't say 'surrender'. She would get all huffy and offer the teacher her lunch money in exchange for some pudding vouchers.
